Course abstract.

The ATA Getting Started in Aesthetic medicine course is aimed at delegates with no previous experience in injecting Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers. It is also ideal as a refresher course for delegates who have previously trained but have not practised.

The course consists of a series of seminars and observation of treatment and supervised practice. As this is often the first exposure to aesthetic medicine for many delegates the course will cover legal implications, accounting and practical considerations of aesthetic medicine. You will also learn to understand the indications for Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers. Finally, ATA will cover the potential complications of treatment and how to manage these should they arise.

They will teach delegates how to use Botulinum Toxin to successfully treat forehead lines, crows feet and frown lines.  Delegates will also learn how to perform simple lip augmentation, treatment of fine lines, treatment of nasolabial area and treatment of the mesolabial area using hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.

You will be requested to provide one model per day of training. The same model can be used during both days ensuring the model displays indications for treatment. Following confirmation of booking you will receive the ‘Essential Summary of Aesthetic Medicine Injecting Techniques’ written by multi-award-winning aesthetic practitioners Drs Simon & Emma Ravichandran. This book should be used for pre and post-course reading and is accompanied by supporting videos.

This training course is conducted under supervision and legal responsibility of Dr Ravichandran and A.T.A. Glasgow.
